It’s a fairly simple build, but it is what the “customer” wanted. My neighbor wanted a long, tall, shallow cabinet to store glasses in. The size constraints were very particular, 17×8 x 72. The face-frame and molding are red oak, the rest is pine except for the bun feet which are poplar. Pocket-screw joinery used throughout exccept to attach the face-frame to the sides. The most difficult part about the whole build was the molding. I now know why those weird angles are marked on my compound miter saw. Making the plugs for the screw-holes gave me a chance to use my new bandsaw.

interesting and nicely done. Proportionally, I can see where customer had a specific need. Nice execution of customer requirements. I just completed a small planter box using pocket screws… they make for very strong construction. No need for glue, actually.

Very nice jelly cabinet. Lots of space for jellies for sure. Good job and I bet the customer loves it.
